Fire together, wire together -- Groks Science Show 2013-01-02




There may be 20 billion neurons in your brain but that isn't nearly enough to allow each cell to hold its own unique bit of information. Rather, the information stored and processed by your brain is maintained in spatially and temporally defined networks. These networks can refine themselves over time and the connections between neurons in these networks strengthen with use and wither with disuse. Dr. Jason MacLean joined us to discuss this Hebbian plasticity and the past, present, and future of research on neuronal networks.
